TO HIS MUSE. (III)
by Robert Herrick
GO woo young Charles no more to look
Than but to read this in my book :
How Herrick begs, if that he can-
Not like the muse, to love the man,
Who by the shepherds sung, long since,
The star-led birth of Charles the Prince.
Long since, i.e., in the Pastoral upon the Birth of
Prince Charles (213), where see Note.
